Hi! We are basically feeding the entire neighbourhood of mice and rats and so I'm afraid my Eglu feeders are going to have to be swapped. I've been doing research on automatic treadle feeders, 2 types seem to be the main options. Grandpa's Feeders (or similar - its difficult to judge online if they're high quality from a pic) or Eton feeders with the plastic green ramp. I have 8 hens to feed but don't necessarily want a huge feeder, just one that works well. What would you guys recommend as the best option? If you have an alternative brand that you've actually bought and used that you think is great, please let me know. Thanks a lot!
Hello! Anyone got any tips for the type of feeder I can use for messy eaters? We've always kept a tray (normal plastic house tray!) under the feeder to make the evening clean up easier when we take the food away, but with our 3 new mucky pups it's working overtime! I've never seen anything like the amount of spillage 🙈 it fills the tray and goes over the sides... perhaps I should start out with less food so they have to eat rather than spread?! This morning I thought I'd switch out the Grub feeder for the original water trough that came with the run (a go up) to see if an open top helped. The Bluebell hopped straight onto the side of it and settled in to feast - my kind of girl, she is food mad 🤣 with any luck this could be a temporary fix but thought I'd ask the experts nonetheless! They seem to love their food and 'help' to clear up the spillage when I take the feeder away so I don't think it's a dislike issue, but I am worried as we have fought a battle against rats in the past so I don't like food hanging around on the floor...
